With the room filled to capacity and people standing in the hall, those in attendance at the last BOT [Board of Trustees] meeting to protest newly imposed, exorbitant parking fees were seemingly treated to an exercise in futility. With over 50 letters submitted and pages of signatures on a petition to protest new parking taxes imposed on only certain businesses in our village, it was evident the Board of Trustees had made up their minds.
When I vote, I expect that person to represent me, and her district, not San Francisco or a Socialist agenda! Reviewing her record, I doubt very much Rep.

I would like to thank the residents and employees who donated blood Wednesday, Oct. 21. I am pleased to report that 14 pints of blood were collected. You can feel proud of your personal involvement in helping those who depend on blood for life giving support. Since there is no substitute for human blood, and no way of knowing when it may be needed to save or sustain the life of a family member, a co-worker, a friend or other members of the community, we must be sure that enough blood is available at all times to meet the needs of our area’s hospitals and their patients.
Again, thank you and we look forward to your participation in our next blood drive in March 2010.

The Garden City community has the opportunity to significantly improve the education of our children by casting your vote on Oct. 27 in favor of the proposed school bond referendum. One of the many issues covered in the bond are significant improvements to the music program at the high school. You may not be aware that there is no classroom available at the high school for the bands to hold their instruction and practice.
